Understanding Kaleidoscopes and Mirrors
There's a time for everyone if they only learn that the twisting kaleidoscope moves us all in turn. . .
I have hope inside is not a heart but a kaleidoscope
Sometimes it seems like you're in way over your head
Other days bring only minor challenges instead
Still, you look around and wonder who really cares?
Who really notices when you're not even there?
Well I notice, I care, and I am here
For you are my reflection in the mirror
No, you do not have to be exactly like me
It is still my reflection that I see
When your world feels like it's falling apart
Look down deep inside, find the light there in our heart
And let it shine ever so bright
Reflecting love back into the darkened night
There for all who love to see, it shows
A brilliant mosaic ever changing as it grows
It twists and turns, shifts and bends
But all the while it never ends
Remember this when communication fails
The kaleidoscope of love always prevails
Perspective sometimes has a way of being skewed
As every single one has his or her own point of view
There is beauty, though, in that too
Another color added, another precious hue
There I am with you and there you are with me
Our friendship creating its own special kind of beauty
Real life is the hardest impression. It's always moving so I let it come through.
